Hi, I'm new to the forum.

I own a small studio in Scotland. For the purposes of my accounts, I need to figure out a replacement value for two old dollies that came with the studio when I bought it. Neither are manufactured anymore, so I'm just looking for a like for like replacement cost.

The first is a Scorpion Spyder Dolly, made in Itlay, and looks similar to an Elemack, runs on pneumatic tyres or track wheels, and has a foot pumped riser column.

The second is a studio crab dolly, made by Parkfield (Freund) Studio Equipment in London, it looks similar to a McAllister, it runs on 8 pneumatic tyres, and has 4 wheel and two rear wheel steering. It has a jib arm that can be charged via an electric pump, or a manual handle.

Both dollies are pretty ancient, but still work fine.

I can upload pics if it helps.

Thanks for any help.

If you have some pictures, please do upload them.

Also, you may be aware of the BSC Equipment show at Elstree this March 13th & 14th. You might be able to get some values there.
